Tour de Fleece


 

 

Tour De Fleece
Every year coinciding with the cyclists of Tour De France, spinners join in the comradery spinning yarn and call it Tour De Fleece.  Spinners participate individually with personal goals or join teams on Ravelry for more competitive participation.  Distance is measured in yardage spun and plied rather than distance cycled.  The main goal is to spin every day and make connections with other spinners.

 

Let's Get Together

During TDF from July 6 to July 28 we will host several spinning meetups here on the farm.  Whether you are spinning on a team or participating solo all are welcome to come spin amongst the goats, chickens, and dogs.  Sign up using the Eventbrite link to get directions and we know you are coming.                   

Saturday, July 6 3-7pm
Thursday, July 11 3-7pm
Wednesday, July 17 3-7pm
Tuesday, July 23 3-7pm
Sunday, July 28 3-7pm

 

Goals

Spinning down the stash is my goal for TDF.  My new Spinolution Hopper wheel has a 16oz flyer and I plan on filling it often.  Fibers I’ll be spinning include Amara Moon Fibers collaboration with Grace Shalom Hopkins, a series of art batts from Amanda Solomon, and a considerable amount of Classy Squid fiber I’ve accumulated over the past year.  What will you spin?
